Same here
I seems that Surfaceflinger is making Android System to drain the battery up to 45% ( the other day I woke up and I saw that it was responsable for 89% of battery consumption..

just came here by chance...
I can offer a possible solution I found on a german blog: http://www.daniel-ritter.de/blog/hoh...-hohe-cpu-last
The guy there states that if you disable auto screen rotation the battery drain by surfaceflinger disappears. I can not definitely confirm this but for me the surfaceflinger process only drains battery if auto rotation is enabled (Moto G running Slimkat rom).
Maybe this is useful for somebody
